Right now, support.
We are asking theme authors to learn new code. I have no doubt some will 
but I would guess most will not. Which leaves support to fall elsewhere. 
That generates problems.....

Also, doesn't this work against RSS as a technology? If feeds are made 
'pretty' then won't some people fail to see it for what it is? To take 
the audiscrobbler feed as an example, a support question will be "How 
can I get my blog header there instead".

That said, I know little about rss/atom etc.

I'm actually in favour of a default, but I'm not in favour of supporting 
forum questions right now. Point me at an 'xslt for beginners' and I'll 
go play :)
